‘Y'all Wanna Hear a Story': The ‘Zola' Movie is Finally Here

The movie by A24 is based on an epic 2015 Twitter thread that sent the internet on a wild ride to Florida

“Y’all wanna hear a story about why me & this b**** here fell out?“

That was the opening tweet to what would become the Twitter saga of the last decade — sending the internet on a journey full of suspense, shock and sweet, sweet drama.

The juicy thread got picked up for a movie and, brace yourselves, because the film from A24 is finally in theaters.

In 2015, a Twitter user named A'Ziah King sent us on a wild ride in a thread detailing the time a fellow stripper named Jess invited her on a trip to Florida to make some money at a strip club.

The story pours one piping hot cup of tea and involves a risque story line with a pimp, a gun and Jess’ unhinged boyfriend who at one point starts punching himself.

We’re a family company so we can’t provide too many details on the plot, but the film “Zola,” directed by Janicza Bravo (“Atlanta”) and written by Bravo and Jeremy O. Harris (“Slave Play”), looks like it brings all the drama and NSFW action you might expect (or hope for) based on the world depicted in Zola’s story.
